The Epson Stylus Color 460 is an A4 inkjet printer that is as compact as it is productive. It weighs over 11 pounds and measures 16.8x10.8x6.2 inches. Taking it back to the early years of the decade, this unit was ahead of the game with its large format printing abilities and vivid color images. It prints up to 4 pages a minute in black and 2.5 pages per minute using color Epson 460 ink cartridges.
This inkjet unit is compatible with Windows only and lacks a USB port. The parallel port interface is sufficient but pretty outdated these days. Speaking of outdated, the 10 KB RAM is a little underwhelming, but it serves its purpose. For under $100, the 460 will provide black and color documents with crisp but grainy text and pictures that are vibrant but not completely accurate and honest to the original.
Using the Stylus Color 460 ink, this unit can print on envelopes, transparencies, gloss paper, photo paper, plain paper and even business cards. The ability to print on various different kinds of paper makes this printer a good addition to small businesses or home offices. It does lack networking and ethernet capabilities, but those features weren't as common 8 years ago.
Upon purchase, 2 cartridges of Epson 460 ink are supplied as well as a printhead, power supply and helpful software. These printer ink tanks, one black and the other color, are low capacity. However, higher capacity Stylus Color 460 ink cartridges are less than $30 and will last much longer. One of the major issues with old-school inkjet printers is the cost of replacing the printer ink due to multiple colors being in one cartridge, so when one color runs out, the other 2 get wasted.
All in all, the Epson Stylus Color 460 is a solid printer. It makes decent pictures and solid text, and contains cartridges of Epson 460 ink with decent page yields.
